Fodor's Review

Built in 1974, this refurbished hotel on the shore of the Arctic Ocean has modern conveniences (such as cable TV and Internet access) perhaps not anticipated this far north, and yet retains a frontier atmosphere. A life-size stuffed polar bear and the mounted head of another greet visitors in the lobby. Adjacent to these critters is the community television, a great spot to mix and mingle with locals and guests alike. Modern, spacious rooms have sitting areas; ask for a room with an ocean view.
